1. YOUR GENERAL PRACTICE TEAM.
There is nothing general about General Practice. Your family doctor is a specialist qualified to look after all aspects of the personal health of you and your family. The doctors at GPMC provide you with the best possible care by applying those years of experience and training. Likewise our practice nurses apply their years of experience and training to ensure you receive a high standard of care.

2. HOME MEDICINE REVIEWS.
Taking the right medicines the right way improves your health and helps you maintain your independence. A Home Medicines Review is a service provided jointly by doctors and pharmacists for people who take medicines. A home medicines review will help you to use your medicines more effectively and to avoid unwanted effects. If you are a carer, the person you care for may benefit from a Home Medicines Review. If so, talk to their doctor or pharmacist.

3. TRAVEL HEALTH ADVICE.
Prior to travel it is a good idea to have a medical check-up for personalised advice on how to reduce your risk of illness. This will include advice on how to prevent infectious disease. Immunisations may be necessary for protection against diseases you may encounter, for routine health measures or as legal requirements for entry into some countries. A Travel Health consultation with your doctor WILL take longer than a normal consultation. To ensure that we can provide maximum benefit to you, please inform our reception staff at the time of booking your appointment that you wish to book a “Travel Health Consultation”

4. GP "MANAGEMENT PLANS" & "TEAM CARE ARRANGEMENTS".
A GP Management Plan is for patients of any age with one or more chronic diseases. It outlines the treatment you will receive from your GP to manage your condition. It is for patients living at home, or private patients being discharged from hospital. If you would benefit from seeing any other health care providers your GP will recommend appropriate services, discuss care and goals with them, and draw up a plan called a ‘Team Care Arrangement’.
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure a high standard of care for our patients, the practice has established a weekly Chronic Disease Management Clinic. Each patient attending the clinic will spend 45 minutes with our Practice Nurse and during that time your current health and care needs will be assessed. A follow up appointment will be organised with your GP.
